The Environmental Studies Program at St. Mary’s College of Maryland
invites applications for its first full-time, tenure-track faculty
position in Environmental Studies at the rank of Assistant Professor
beginning in August 2009, contingent upon adequate state funding
support.  A Ph.D. in Environmental Studies or in a related
interdisciplinary field such as sustainability is required, and
candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in hand or expected when the
appointment begins.  Proficiency in another discipline and a
demonstrated ability to attract and retain students from
underrepresented groups are desirable.

We seek a candidate whose first priority is high-quality teaching in a
liberal arts college. The successful candidate will demonstrate
ability and interest in interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship,
community involvement, and collaborating with colleagues from
departments across campus to build the program.  Teaching expectations
are three courses per semester, including the required introductory
Environmental Perspectives courses and a senior-level Environmental
Studies seminar with additional intermediate or upper level courses
appropriate to the individual's area of specialization.

Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary's College of Maryland, a
public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located
in Historic St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.,
has been designated as Maryland's public honors college. With highly
selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a
rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to
that found at exceptional private colleges.  St. Mary’s faculty
benefit from a comprehensive program of support for scholarship,
research, travel, and curriculum development, including course
releases for pre-tenure faculty and leaves for tenured faculty.  The
quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the
Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and
Baltimore.

Send CV, cover letter including statement of research and teaching
interests, teaching philosophy, graduate academic transcripts, and
three letters of recommendation  (including at least two addressing
teaching ability) to Dr. Kate Chandler, Coordinator, Environmental
Studies, Dept. of English, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, 18952 E.
Fisher Rd., St. Mary’s City, MD 20686-3001.  For further information

Dr. Chandler at krchandler from smcm.edu.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2008 and continue until
the position is filled.  St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an
affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
